Improving the nutrition status of children and women
id21 insights 73, July 2008

The high world food prices that we are currently experiencing provide a chilling reminder of the vulnerability of large parts of sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to hunger and undernutrition. Many children in these regions are vulnerable to poor growth, poor development and death.

Even before these high prices, child undernutrition was increasing in Africa. In booming South Asia, stubborn child undernutrition rates provide a sombre reminder that income growth does not solve all problems.

Good nutrition status for children and adolescent girls is fundamental for attaining many of the Millennium Development Goals. Despite this, donors and governments underinvest in interventions to improve nutrition.

This issue is guest edited by Lawrence Haddad, Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK, with academic advice provided by Catherine Geissler, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, King’s College London, UK. Topics covered include:
• Why is undernutrition not a higher priority for donors?
• Public-private sector partnerships
• The price of hunger
• Child undernutrition in Africa
• Nutrition for mothers and children

'Financing primary health care'
id21 insights health #12, May 2008

Today, millions of people in low- and middle-income countries do not have access to basic, good quality health services. The Alma Ata Declaration in 1978 defined primary health care as basic health care built on technically sound and socially adequate approaches, universally accessible and affordable to all individuals. This issue of id21 insights explores the challenges facing donors and national governments in providing and financing primary health care for all.


The latest issue of id21 insights health is guest edited by Valeria Oliveira-Cruz, Health Policy Unit, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK, with contributions on the topics of:
• Skilled delivery care in Indonesia
• The story of primary health care: from Alma Ata to the present day
• Contracting out health services: broadening coverage, raising quality, lowering cost
• Better access to effective antimalarials: The Affordable Medicines Facility for malaria
• Efficiency and equity through a sector-wide approach in Uganda
• Tackling Malawi’s human resources crisis
